The best thing about this hotel is their "High Tea". I think its cheaper than the one in Galle Face Hotel. The food was amazing and the staff was polite. If i could make a suggestion i would tell that the hotel needs a total redesign starting from the exterior.

The hotel is located very close to the beach in Colombo and is just a 10 minutes walk to Galle Face Green park. The hotel rooms are clean, well maintained and the staff is really friendly. The outdoor pool and sauna is a welcoming amenity after a day full of sightseeing. There are a few casinos you can visit close... More

Their were action stations & a verity of savory & sweets on a buffet setting. Unlimited Beverages were also available. And the staff are very friendly & helpful too. The price... More

I attended a medical meeting here and the meeting facilities were very good. The location is good as this is within walking distance of the beach and the Dutch Hospital. The hotel is very busy and so check in took some time; we asked for our bags to be taken to the room, but after a long wait and no... More

The service is absolutely horrendous. No proper service in the rooms. You'll even have to call housekeeping for a bottle of water when you get back from work in the evening and they still refuse to give it! They don't care how much you're paying or what so ever they'll choose to ignore you royally! Absolutely disappointing

The hotel location and room sea view is very nice, but the furniture is getting old. Needs some renovation. The staff were very help and friendly. It was my second visit after 2012 to the hotel, and it was not better this time. The food was accepted.

Although the hotel location was near enough to markets and malls, and the restaurant (coffee shop within the hotel) was awesome and the food was good, but the rooms were very bad. The furniture was about 20 yrs old, the toilet was floated with water, and the rooms and floors had a very bas smell. Eventhough we stayed 3 days... More
